Come hike with us on February 7, under the illumination of a Full Snow Moon.  Also called the Full Hunger Moon or Little Famine Moon, the full moon during the month of February acquired these names from the Northeastern Native American tribes so as to characterize the climate in February and some of the agricultural challenges that accompany the harsh weather.  The DCR is hosting several similar hikes in different regions in the state.  We challenge you to find the one nearest you and brave the cold for an hour and a half and truly enjoy the outdoors for its fresh winter air and of course the spectacular glow of a full moon in the night sky.  Hikes are scheduled in Dartmouth, Milton, the South Metro Region and the Middlesex Fells Reservation in Malden. 

If you’d prefer to spend time outdoors when it is a little bit lighter out, you can join us for WILD workshops, winter tracking lessons, or a story about ice harvesting at Walden Pond in Concord.
